Pros

We love the constant features that are being added regularly. The ability for owners and tenants having their own portal is great.

Michael L.

Appfolio is a great software where we can keep track of all of the properties we manage. It has great functionality and features to keep track of all of the important information we need.

Patrick B.

This software is just amazing. I work in the property management industry, and this software makes it so simple to manage all of our client's portfolios effectively and easily.

Pros

This product was recommended by our CPA who uses it for his own office. That recommendation was good enough for us and it has proven to be an invaluable asset to our business.

Rachel G.

Great service, great app, great website. User friendly, leaves me with no questions after checking my breakdowns every pay period.

Meagan O.

We are a month into the implementation process with Paychex and just processed our very first payroll. So far the experience with Paychex and their implementation team has been outstanding.

MIRANDA F.

Cons

With everything being automated the lack of a quick response from a human can be frustrating. The vacancy advertising link is also very frustrating.

In short, it is making me look bad before my clients because I'm unable to perform tasks because Appfolio support team is deficient and don't even know how to assist the clients.

PB

Paola B.

The transition was the worst experience we have had transitioning software and it's creating a lot of operating difficulties.

SM

Shelley M.

Cons

I never criticize publicly about an organization but this one was so very unprofessional and even made worse by the outrageous fees they charge.

JC

Joyce C.

It can be a problem to login to the work site which is frustrating when trying to clock in or clock out on time.

Anonymous Reviewer

Just about everything else. Its not user-friendly, its customer service is terrible and we get so many complaints for employees, as the admin I have limited resources to help.
